Roller Tune-O-Matic Bridge: sizes variety?

I’m thinking to buy one for my LP. And I thought it should be of standard size, but no…
My current ordinary bridge (Schaller) has stud spacing 75mm, string spread 53mm and narrow posts (4mm).
It looks like Shaller’s roller bridge (Schaller Roller Bridge at Stewart-MacDonald) fits the best. Though according to diagram it has 73.99mm stud spacing?! And this parameter is the most critical. If I get wrong, roller bridge just won’t fit posts on my guitar. Also this Shaller roller bridge doesn’t have a reach-through hole like my ordinary bridge…
This one Roller Bridge Chrome BM025 - (eBay item 220147433820 end time Sep-12-07 23:35:54 PDT) has stud spacing 73.5mm and wide posts holes (6mm)
What should I do to pick up a correct roller bridge? Take my bridge to the store and compare it side by side with a roller bridge before buying?
